On this week’s Dropout Nation Podcast, RiShawn Biddle talks about the four steps school reformers must take to advance school choice and Parent Power by overhauling school funding and challenging rhetoric and mindsets. In order to provide high-quality opportunities for all children, school reformers must challenge the mindsets and tactics of education tradtionalists such as Diane Ravitch and even suburbanites in places such as Zachary, La., who look at moves such as Mitt Romney’s support for school choice,and the passage of voucher and tax credit plans in Louisiana and other states, as anathema to their views on what public education should be.
